godswords are a epic weapon in waiting...

put it bluntly, what has the highest stats of any weapon b4 the godswords? whip would be hgh up.
but once godswords broke though that, stronger weapons and been comeing, claws, ss, chaotic, EE/EEE, korasi sword and pvp weapons.

gs may be a horrible weapon now... and not the best when they came out... but without them we would probably still be at whips lol. something had to be the first dident it?

but besdies that, thay surve only to be as a way to make money at godwars. although you cant deny some advanatged it has, reletively strong and cheap. 8 prayer bonous and sometimes-usefull specs.

imo, some of the new drops comeing out from this nex should be godsword enhancers.
depending on how good thay are (and if thay are real :P), we could see them become usefull for a long time (until the next equivilent of chaotic comes XD)

I see no need in devaluing the dungeoneering rewards by adding godsword enhancers. Godswords still have their niches and as mentioned earlier, a viable option for low level players who know no better.

Should've posted this a year or two ago. They're outdated ('cept bgs).

As everyone knows, godswords are one of the best weapons in runescape,

No.

No.

They're still some of the best weapons, they're just outperformed by claws, chaotics, eee, whip etc. Still a top 10.

In case you didn't notice, godswords fell horribly in price because Chaotic weaponry is way better.

1. Takes ages to get a Chaotic Weapon, whereas with godswords the only time spent is on getting the cash and buying it (you can resell and reclaim your geepees)
2. Funny how i haven't seen anyone CLS rushing recently, but i'm pretty much always getting 1 item AGS rushed
3. No special attacks, therefore no bonuses at all past the decent stats

Yes, a lot of situations are unsuited for godswords, that doesn't make them crap and redundent... It makes them a [bleep]ing weapon. There are plenty of situations where i would rather use a DDS than a Dragon Scimitar, that doesn't make the scimitar instantly [cabbage]ty and not worth having.

oh, i thought of a use for godswords: flipping

the ONLY combat use in which godswords are "good" - not even the best - is BGS for nex/corp. AGS pking sucks. SGS is useful in like 1% of situations. ZGS sucks.

1. Takes ages to get a Chaotic Weapon, whereas with godswords the only time spent is on getting the cash and buying it (you can resell and reclaim your geepees)
You can get a chaotic weapon in 4 hours at 120DG. At 100 DG you can still get one in less than 10.
2. Funny how i haven't seen anyone CLS rushing recently, but i'm pretty much always getting 1 item AGS rushed
Funny how you don't mention the maul.
3. No special attacks, therefore no bonuses at all past the decent stats
That's like saying a spatula is bad for poking things with. Spec weapons are for specs, main weapons are for stats.

Godswords are pretty sucky but with a Zaros hilt they become one-handed and dart speed, so you better get a good supply of blades, they're going up :P.

Suck is relative, and the thing with the godsword is that there are alternatives that perform better, are easier to obtain/cost less/have lower requirements. It's not like the dragon scimitar, which probably sucks but at least is the best at its level.

To be fair, you could say bronze daggers don't suck because they're just an alternative to rune daggers

Alright, godswords may not be in the top 10 (I just threw that out there). But for people who don't have chaotics, they don't "suck".

I ignored the word "primary" because there's no reason to include that limitation. Outside of duelling, there is no restriction that prevents you from speccing. You can't just ignore the spec aspects, or else BGS=ZGS=AGS=SGS.

Even if you include the word primary, whip is still better normal (non-spec) DPS in like 90% of cases, even for lower levels. It's also cheaper, 1-handed, has less overkill loss, etc. Also, ZS, SS, KS are better in certain cases.

Most definitely. BGS is WAY to slow for training strength.

That said, I love my SGS for certain slayer tasks. SGS + Soul Split = Awesome!

IMO ...

Actually, Godswords can be useful to lower levels, as when your attacking stuff with high defense, the higher accuracy and strength bonus makes it more useful then a whip. But yeah, godswords really aren't that useful, and are definitely NOT the preferred weapon of choice for high levels.

If that's the case, use a chaotic maul :-)

Replace EEE with Bandos goodsword...because be honest here...once you have soul split...EEE has even less uses then BGS (which only has corp)
Godswords are decent weapons, there's no way you can deny that. Just because there are weapons that are better then them, does not mean they suddenly suck altogether.
Godswords are actually great bossing weapons for lower levels or people who don't have chaotics yet (depends on the boss of course), since they actually need the accuracy.
PVP weapons are not used by the average player.....and please...don't ignore the word average there and post videos of Top Boss hunters, or top Pkers....People who do "pro" corp, are not average.
